Subject: Best sounding source
This is better sounding than the Oade sources. This is the version you want.

High Time and Lost Sailor for some reason was always a favorite of mine.

Subject: All Saints day
The boys really knew how to make us happy many nights. This is one of them. I forgot how good 1985 was till I started listening to it more and more.I had kind of thought they sold out this year. Meaning they had become to much of a lets get this east coast crowd hooked and sell more stuff. Looking back I was wrong. And even if I was rite who am I to say they shouldn't go after it after so many years of being a dance band. Am still abit more into the older years when we could go to any show any time any where and grab a ticket minutes before they came on.
Back to the show. This just grabs you and doesn't let go till the encore,which was there way of cooling off the crowd before we hit the streets. Anyone remember when the boys split up sailor and saint? I dont!!!! It was all saints day though. They really did pay atention to the news of the day or the holiday it may have been.This one is a must have

Subject: Wow
Who said this was the best show ever played? Please. However, this kind of show is exactly why you gotta love love the Grateful Dead. On this night, like so many before it, something must have been in the water. The boys were in a strange mood and it really comes through in their playing which is not sloppy or labored as it was towards the end. Put a nice bake on and take a listen to the second set.

unbelievable almost 23 years later and thank you archive!!

Subject: omg yes
Yeah this a gem. The entire second set is a real treat from High Time on. The Gloria is one of the best i have heard. The only downside (if you haven't read the set list already) is that pesky Day Job. Otherwise - this gets an Orion's Belt plus 2.
Reviewer: Chris U. - - July 23, 2008
Subject: Sloppy and labored
Note to the other reviewer: listen to the ending of Comes A Time, please. Thank you.

I agree that this show is weird and worth checking out but there are a lot of far more worthy shows from earlier in the year than this one.
Reviewer: Burnt Rich - - May 17, 2008
Subject: I know its a Dick's Pick..............
...........but this aud copy is as good or better! Great job, you guys!!!! This is how they all should sound. "Just exactly perfect" One of the best from a year that had more than it's share of barn-burning performances.
